The Minnesota Timberwolves' front office of Tom Thibodeau and Scott Layden has developed a reputation amongst agents and executives around the league as being one of the most difficult to engage with.

The way the Wolves operate has been on display, to a degree, with how long trade talks involving Jimmy Butler have dragged out.

Thibodeau reportedly has been attempting to convince Butler to remain with the Wolves and to drop his trade request.

Thibodeau and Layden were hired by the Wolves following the 16-17 season.
